at the white house. vice president joe biden is here at the white house. chuck hagel, the chairman of the joint chief, martin dempsey, so all of that giving an indication that the president is close to making a decision, but because white house officials are saying this is not about imminent or commenced operations, perhaps we will be hearing about something else. we should also note this administration was set to start briefing members of the senate today, members of the house tomorrow, to fully get them up to speed on what is happen ng syria and so, it will be interesting to find out whether or not the president's comments have any impact. the other thing we should point out and this is just a small, minor thing, is that according to a note distributed to reporters here at the white house, a telepromter has been set up in the rose garen for the president's address. i only say that because yesterday, his comments were very much off the cuff. he had some notes in front of him, but he was not reading from prepared remarks, but this statement indicates that perhaps he will be doing that this afte

called it a moral obscenity and culminated by today where joe biden said there's no doubt the assad regime is responsible. >> mike, the american people are wary of any military involvement in syria. how does the president sell this military action? >> what's important to keep in mind john, this is the second time this year that the obama administration has judge assad to have deployed these chemical weapons. the president has been very hesitant to get involved in the course of the three years of civil conflict under withering response from john mccain on capitol hill. there has been this hesitancy and obviously a war weariness on the part of the american public. i think a good gaining of where the milk stands -- gauge of where the public stands, the point might be academic bit that point john. >> mike thank you. >>> momentum for military intervention, is building in syria as well. president says he's ready to punish those who gassed sifnlings and the british government recalled people to placement. >> david cameron cut short his summer holiday and returned to london to decide what a

vowed that they would fight any u.s. attack at all costs. vice president joe biden joined the course of top officials here in the administration saying today, that president assad and syria was responsible for these chemical attacks and vice president biden suggested there may be unilateral action that could be imminent without congressional or u.n. approval. that's interesting, back in the 2008 presidential campaign, candidate biden said of then president bush, if he attacked iran without approval he should be impeached. the boston globe, we checked this, gave all of the candidates in 2008 questionnaires for written questions. we checked them and one focused on whether a president could bomb iran without authorization from congress. then senator obama answered that question by saying, the president does not have power under the constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation. i pressed jay carney on that point today in the daily briefing and also, meanwhile, republicans like john mccain
the president said he would do when he was a candidate in 2007-2008. let's remember the vice president joe biden, running for president, and in 2007 he was at a new hampshire campaign event where he said as senate foreign relations committee chairman at the time, then president bush moved forward with an attack on iran, try to prevent them from getting nuclear weapons and did without congressional approval, joe biden said he would personally lead impeachment charges against then president bush. we see a much different situation going on now. where they are moving forward without congressional approval. you are right. there is pressure. it is not just john cornyn who is significant. not just a rank and file, a leader, the whip, behind mitch mcconnell, the leader, number one. have you democrats as well. joe manchin of west virginia came out last might and said, mr. president, you cannot move forward with any military force without first getting a debate and vote in the house and senate. now, what is the likelihood of that? highly unlikely because we talked to officials in both parties and got lawm
and they are in worse shape than they were before. does it at least give you a head start? >> dr. joe biden things it does. community college is the answer. >> the for-profit solution is to say that in a month you can get your money back so that these kids are not accruing all this debt. >> the march on washington. >> my parents felt it was important for me to be here. >> that is carolyn gambles, preparing to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the march on washington and martin luther king's i have a dreams beach. i have a dream-- speech. as we approach, a federal judge voting to overturn the texas voting law. >> congress can find a way to fix flight control at the airports -- .> i am all for that >> and to get a plane to carry the presidential dog to the vineyard. he does require a plane. >> not of his own. mark and i were having this discussion, and he is more eloquent than i am, but we have gone from martin luther king to the reverend al sharpton. as a leader, as he is trying to be this weekend, it is very dispiriting. >> it is absolutely true. the mark on washington was a remarkable event. a ma
, a number of republicans have done it that way. on the democratic side joe biden, a guy named joe biden jumped into the race early back in was it, '93 and then got out quickly. getting in early, jim, is not necessarily a guaranty of success. >> no. look, every democrat thought that teddy kennedy would get the nomination, probably in '76. and then in 80 and 84. because he was such a huge name, chappaquiddick notwithstanding. mark shields, veteran democratic pundit likes to joke he was first guy to plan the inauguration for president muskie in 1973. of course he was the democrat who lost to george mcgovern in the primary. there are 30 twist and turns to come. the jon, the fact you're praising iowa's farmland tells me that, gleam in your eye. >> muskie had not shed a tear he might have been president if he hadn't cried in new hampshire. many people may think hillary is foregone conclusion which may not be true but others in the field could be easily running for vice president. as you pointed out, joe biden started really early, he became the choice of barack obama to be vp. so that could b
the alleged use of chemical weapons by the assad regime. speaking last night, u.s. vice president joe biden said there was no doubt chemical weapons were used and those responsible should be held accountable. the british prime minister david cameron's office backed the white house earlier today saying both governments had clear evidence the regime carried out the attacks. cameron reconvened parliament early to vote for a motion on syria on thursday, but some surrounding cautious on international intervention. sergey lavrov has reportedly warned the u.n. that an attack on syria would destabilize the region. hadly gamble is with us on set. >> the russians aren't the only ones worried about what a post assad syria would look like. i had a chance to catch up with an egyptian billionaire and he said, yes, he thinks assad's days are numbered but is deeply troubled about what will happen to the country when assad is gone. >> the problem right now is exactly that. we want to help the syrian people to get out of dictatorship. that is for sure. but under no way fanatic, terroristic elements that oper
and talking in those sorts of context. by yesterday, we had joe biden presenting what is largely a circumstance case that's put forth publicly by this point that is namely, we know that chemical weapons were deployed, and that the assad regime that the method to deliver those weapons. they are the only ones that could have done it, biden said there is no doubt. the report will be declassified and released perhaps as early at tomorrow morning. >> you mentioned a shift in tone. the president will be giving a speech today centered on peace commemorating the 50t 50th anniversary of martin luther king's march on washington. is there any way we could be firing rockets at syria before he delivers that speech? >> i seriously doubt that number one for the optics, number two, the u.n. in texters are on the ground. we expect the administration to release a case publicly that gets away from the circumstance case that you and i are talking about and present a more factual case, specific examples of how the assad regime went forward with this. that's what we're expecting. i don't expect this t
to chuck hagel and john kerry and joe biden is aggressive towards syria but they are stressing any strike would be surgical, that is the word they like to use, what does that mean? >> well, surgical is a relative term. mostly or most likely the first way would involve attacking missiles and submarine station would put attacking force out of harm's way and syrian defenses and allow them to an area of 50 or fewer meters to hit a precision target like a command center and radar and missile battery or military installation. >> reporter: let's get more detail on this, edward. a surgical strike against war, defenses and chemical zones, i mean supposing these are in civilian areas? >> well, that is an interesting question. obviously the first rule of entering this is what do you want to achieve and clearly the threat of military action has suddenly heightened because of the chemical weapons attack but it's not an operation which the u.s. wants to get involved in the civil war but to prevent chemical weapons attacks and you can hit radar and military sites of the government that would not stop t
with the president and reports from scranton, pennsylvania. >> reporter: while both he and joe biden focused on domestic issues, on the international stage president obama found his credibility on the line as he used a cnn interview to comment about the alleged chemical weapons attack in syria that may have killed up to 1,800 people. >> when you start seeing chemical weapons used on a large scale and again we're still gathering information about this particular event, it is very troublesome. that starts getting to some core national interests that the united states has. both in terms of us making sure that weapons of mass destruction are not proliferating and needing to protect our allies. >> reporter: that was a nod to deliberation sources say are happening inside the administration over whether the u.s. military will use cruise missiles to punish syrian president bashar al assad yet the president has been talking tough for a long time and has only sent u.s. aid since one year ago this week when he vowed enormous consequences if syria crossed that red line. republicans like john mccain have
.n. security council condemning the chem wall weapons attack and vice president joe biden using some of the strongest language yet at an event yesterday. >> there's no doubt who is responsible for this heinous use of chemical weapons in syria. the syrian regime. the president believes and i believe that those who use chemical weapons against defenseless men, women, and children should and must be held accountable. >> nbc chief foreign correspondent richard engel is in turkey near the border of syria. are they talking about a military strike there? >> reporter: they certainly are and turkey would be a willing participant in this. turkey said it's willing to pay any price to see bashar al assad go. the question now is what is the role of the u.n. and the u.n. investigators? today in damascudamascus, the t from the u.n. left their hotel after a 24-hour delay. they went to the suburbs outside of damascus and continued their work. the united nations says that these investigations should continue and that a full process should be allowed to run its course before any military action is take
a moment. i'm going to revisit with you in just a moment but we have vice president joe biden who is speaking in houston before the american legion convention. let's listen in. >> everyone acknowledges their use. no one doubts that innocent men, women and children have been the victims of chemical weapons attacks in syria. and there is no doubt who is responsible for this heinous use of chemical weapons in syria. the syrian regime. for we know that the syrian regime are the only ones who have the weapons, have used chemical weapons multiple times in the past, have the means of delivering those weapons, have been determined to wipe out exactly the places that were attacked by chemical weapons and instead of allowing u.n. inspectors immediate access, the government has repeatedly shelled the sites of the attack and blocked the investigation for five days. at president obama's direction, all of us and his national security team have been in close touch with our foreign counterparts. the president believes, and i believe, that those who use chemical weapons against defenseless men, wo
evidence of chemical attacks vice president joe biden said there is no evidence that gassed their own people. echoing calls for military action and some reports suggest the countdown to u.s. strikes could now be mere hours. cnn's chris lawrence is at his post at the pentagon. good morning, chris. >> good morning, carol. well, yes, the military is ready, but u.s. officials say there is still work to be done behind the scenes. that includes making sure allies have the authorization they need. making calls to key members of congress and declassifying some of the proof that details of which may surprise you. the latest warning to syria comes directly from the white house. >> those who use chemical weapons against defenseless men, women and children should and must be held accountable. >> another sign to expect action, u.s. officials all but telling u.n. inspectors, get out of the way. >> it's clear the security situation isn't safe for the team in syria. >> reporter: the defense secretary told the bbc u.s. ships are positioned and preparations complete. >> we are ready to go. >> reporter:
what we heard barack obama and joe biden as vice-presidential candidate in 2008. at one point joe biden said in 2007 if then president bush moved forward with an attack on iran, separate from syria in the middle east, joe biden would lead impeachment charges against the president. they have gone a long way from that. what they're saying now, there won't be a vote in congress but that instead what the president will do is consult with congress, this phone call at 6:00 p.m. eastern and other phone calls that have already happened. there's a lot of intense action as the president faces a lot of pressure on this decision whether he will move forward or not. you heard him in the pbs interview saying it could be a shot across the bow against syria. there are military experts say a shot across the bow sounds symbolic. they wand to hear from the president directly. we haven't from him beyond the press interview and cnn interview last week directly from the military what the mission would be. >> and it's growing, bipartisan push for questions, push for answers and consultation with congress and
president joe biden friday afternoon in scranton. now, i'm told michael scott will not be there, but organizers are hoping for an appearance by dwight schrute. jonathan allen, those are references to the hit nbc show "the office." i want to make sure you're in on -- >> i've watched once or twice. >> you've seen it? well, nbc humor, it's big around here. let's start with what's going on in congress. you have all this discussion about cutting off aid. one big reason for that has nothing to do with egypt or the camp david accord. it's the fact that congress's main foreign policy tool is funding. they don't have a constitutional role in a lot of other activities other than if you actually get to the point of authorizing the use of force. is that the main reason we're hearing so much about the economic aid, or do you think there's more to it? >> i think that's a big reason. certainly gives a voice to folks like senator patrick leahy. he already had a plan to do a phased giving of u.s. aid in the future to egypt based on their ability to come up with some sort of democratically electe
. obama will appear with two scranton natives, u.s. sen. bob casey and vice president joe biden, as he delivers his message to one of the nation's biggest college states. the new york city council voted yesterday to implement a watchdog group. the new group will have subpoena power to examine the police departments "operations, policies, programs and practices".not just stop and frisk the vote overrode mayor bloomberg's earlier veto of the watchdog plan. the legislation in court. in texas, deliberations are underway in the shooting rampage trial for major nidal hasan. hasan is accused of killing 13 people and wounding 30 others at a military base back in 2009. the army psychologist passed on his final chance to address jurors before they started deliberations yesterday. prosecutors have called for the death penalty. authorities in las vegas are alleging that two suspects under arrest were plotting to kidnap police officers, ' put them on trial, and execute them in a vacant house." police have arrested david brutsche and devon newman. the two men planned to carry out the plot to bring a

. i think joe biden and there are other folks out there that would probably like to be considered. is she anointed? is it over? >> well, yes. but and here is the important thing. you remember the republicans in 2012 when they believed anybody could beat barack obama. you remember michele bachmann saying any one of us on this stage could beat barack obama. and in press row you heard a sharp intake of. [gasp] as she said that. any one of us. republicans went through a period of time where anybody could beat barack obama with whom do we want to beat him? and we had santorum and cane and goodrich and bachmann and all of this stuff because republicans thought -- some republicans thought that beating obama would be a lay down hand. now it's democrats' turns to beat this assumption. they believe the republican party because they watch most television stations and read most newspapers. republican party is ruined overdefeated, they are sowing salt in the wounds of the g.o.p. dead forever. anybody could beat ted cruz or anybody could beat rand paul. when will they start indulging do we real
? >> the latest comments we have done in this coming from the white house pool from vice president joe biden, he was shouted a question and ask whether the french were on board with a syria attack, joe biden responded by saying i know everybody is on board and that is all he said, there are plenty who aren't on board. and the fringe made plenty of statements, the questions we had for the past week remain. where will it be and when will it be and we hope to get some type of guidance from the secretary at 12:30. what we expect this afternoon is the release of this intelligence report, that shows the use of chemical weapons in syria so john kerry could be commenting on that. we are not sure what they plan on laying out here. it or what timeline we're dealing with. and he is going to russia for the g 20 summit. and he would not want to launch an attack overseas. you want to be here in the united states. that is guess where, speculation, people commenting, we are not sure if that is the thought of the white house that this is the deliberative process, still wants to get congress on board, and a major

with joe biden the other day and the subject came up, 2016, and although she didn't say, joe, i hope you're not going to run, she certainly made it clear to him, according to my reporting, of people who are familiar with what went on during that breakfast, that he avoided telling her that he would not run. in other words, he left the definite impression he was thinking seriously of running. >> it must have stunned him a bit then, she also had lunch with the president. >> right. >> it looks pretty clear where his allegiance lies. the republicans are getting ready for 2014. and they haven't declared victory 2014, they haven't got a great big motto. they have up in their meeting in boston talking about making it happen. they don't define it. >> they don't tell us how. >> right. >> they've got a lot to explain and a lot to energize their base which is precisely what it's been for the past two presidential elections, that is, 37% identifying themselves as republicans, they got a lot to energize. >> they do. and clinton -- the clintons meantime are actually piling up hundreds of millions of do

. certainly the position of barack obama and joe biden -- >> bill: i meant for the whole world to see, look, we're taking this seriously, but why do we have to do it on friday? you know, we don't have to do it that -- >> also a muslim holiday, but that doesn't leave enough time for a two to three-day attack before the president gets on a plane to saint petersburg. >> bill: why would he launch that will blow up every kind of thing in the summit? pardon the pun. >> that yes question. why do this you're not going to be pose assad, why do this if you're not going take the weapons out of his hands, lots of whys. >> bill: rosen said the degrading of it. we should be very deliberate and methodical. there's no rush on this. gentlemen, thank you very much. we appreciate it. plenty more aheads "the factor" moves ahead this evening. is facebook addictive and dangerous to your health? dr. keith ablow says yes. and then more miley cyrus and bradley manning. no, manning doesn't want to be miley. it's a whole differenthnology gives you security. technology gives you control and now technology gives you ho
on the other side about how this resonates for you in new orleans, but this was vice president joe biden earlier talking about one of them. take a look. >> the proposed rule requires people associated with these kinds of trusts or corporations to go through the same background check that individuals have to do. we'll end this means by which to get these most dangerous weapons to people who are not under the law allowed to own them. >> so mr. mayor, like other urban and major cities, new orleans struggles with the issue of crime. what specifically did the president say that resonated that you can take back and implement for the people of new orleans. >> first of all, the fact that he had the meeting on the day before he was going to commemorate dr. king's address, and simultaneously considering our nation as response, really indicated to us that he's serious about finding every which way we can to curb urban violence, so that spoke volumes. secondly the mayors around the country are working on the same kind of cat trophic problems, what we have said, is -- is a catastrophic event that's o
here. >>> the white house is taking new action on gun control now. have the joe biden announced would executive actions aimed at keeping more military surplus weapons out of the country and getting rid of a system that lets buyers avoid background checks by registering guns to corporations. the vice-president says the moves are simple, straightforward, and common sense, the critics say it won't keep criminals from getting guns. doug is live in washington. explain more about the plan. what is going to happen here? >> trace, it's a way for the administration to circumvent the lack of legislative well for more gun control by doing it through executive action. the first of the two new proposed regulations would end the policy where military weapons sold or handed over to u.s. allies abroad, are then reimported back into the u.s. by private sellers. the second proposed regulation would keep people who cannot pass a background check from circumventing the law by registering certain guns to a corporation or a trust. it would do so by requiring people associated with those trusts to be finger
that vice president joe biden, a 30-year senator, was heavily involved in it. he was so far out on the limb it was pathetic. he didn't have backing from the u.s. coming, nato, arab league, denounced by egypt, denounced by jordan. this was a loser. a limited military strike wasn't going to change the situation on the ground. >> general, we have also seen reports that some within the military, actually, wrls concerned about the way the president was proceeding. i would assume this alays some of their concerns as well. >> nobody with eight brain cell who had military experience thought this was a good idea. there was a letter that said don't get involved in a ground civil war. if you do get involved. if you've written your political objective and you want to deter assad from threatening his own people. 100,000 dead. ruined half the country. then use meaningful military american measures. it could destroy the syrian armed forces in 60 days. but not with 200 tomahawks. >> when you hear the president talk about a limited strike. that sounds shorter than 60 days. how realistic do you think it is?

"fox report's" chief correspondent jonathan hunt live now. jonathan, the u.s. does not necessarily need the u.n.'s permission for this. >> no, it doesn't, but like president bush in the run-up to the iraq war president obama might feel that it is worth being seen to try to get some sort of consensus at the united nations security council. u.n. officials certainly made the point today that they believe that effort is worthwhile and indeed necessary. listen. >> i do know that president obama, the american administration, are not known to be trigger happy. what they will decide, i don't know. >> the problem with bringing in the securi
